Address transformation schemes, such as skewing and linear transformations, have been proposed to achieve conflict-free access to one family of strides in vector processors with matched memories. The paper extends these schemes to achieve this conflict-free access for several families. The basic idea is to perform an out-of-order access to vectors of fixed length, equal to that of the vector registers of the processor. The hardware required is similar to that for the access in order.
